Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server(s)

Thu Jan 28, 2016 12:57 am

EDIT: August 15 2018

At this time, the only known public accessable Mikrotik btest server is 207.32.194.24 (user=btest passoword=btest)

Note; The planetcoop btest server is no longer online. I/we want to say thank you planetcoop for offering to us your btest server. It will be missed.

Note: If anybody else is interested in hosting a btest server (10 meg or 100 meg or 1-Gig peak bandwidth), please post here and let us know.

EDIT: February 28th, 2018

btest server change effective immediately , aka - right now (March 22, 2018)
btest server 207.32.195.2 was moved to 207.32.194.24
Same server , same settings .. Just IP renumbered now to 207.32.194.24

btest user:btest
btest password: btest

FYI: My business is growing. We needed the entire 207.32.195.0/24 Class C netblock for some new networks we are building. Normally , I would of given a prior notice but something came up today and I had to rush a re-number on this btest server.

North Idaho Tom Jones
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: February 28th, 2018
1st - today, I changed the bandwidth allocated to the 207.32.195.2 btest server
Info here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=104266&p=645201#p645201
Max Limit: 105M
Burst Limit: 1250M
Burst Threshold: 50M
Burst Time: 500

The simple queue operates this way:
#1; allow sustained btest of 105-Meg
#2; If the recent bandwidth average has been below 50-Meg for (Burst-Time seconds), then allow up to 1.25-Gig (until this this #2 line no longer is valid).


2nd - Sometime in/around March 2018, the planetcoop btest server 50.235.23.218 will be going away.
planetcoop is moving to a new location and may not have easy access to a 10-Gig Internet connection for his btest server.
I would like give planetcoop a big "thank you" for his participation and donated time & equipment & operating Internet expenses in our Mikrotik community.

More info about planetcoop:: viewtopic.php?p=645482#p645482

3rd - If anybody is interested in placing their own btest server on-line for the Mikrotik community to use , please let me/us know.
It could be a 10-Meg or 100-Meg or 1-Gig or even a 10-Gig btest server (depending on the bandwidth you might wish to allocate for a btest server)

EDIT: January 3rd, 2017

Thanks to planetcoop , we now have two public Mikrotik bandwidth btest servers we can test to out on the Internet.

Both btest servers are running Mikrotik CHR.
Both are on 10-gig Internet connections. This however does not imply you are able to test the full 10-gig.
Here is the information:

planetcoop btest server:
Host: btest.planetcoop.com
ipv4: 50.235.23.218
ipv6: 2001:559:8062::20
user and pass: btest
traffic graph of this btest server: https://btest.planetcoop.com:10443/graphs/iface/ether1/

TomjNorthIdaho btest server:
ipv4: 207.32.195.2
user and pass: btest
traffic graph of this btest server: http://207.32.195.2/graphs/iface/ether1/

You are welcome and encouraged to post your btest throughput results - and please let us know where you are located:
Also; A Reputation +1 is always welcome.


Please - limit your btests to short periods of time. We are also using some of our bandwidth for our customers also.

Thank you

North Idaho Tom Jones


======================================================================================================
EDIT: Feb 24 2016 --- Now supports up to 3.5 Gig speedtest - read all the posts
EDIT: October 7th 2016 --- This btest server now supports 3.6 Gig for both send and receive tests - please read through all the posts


I have setup a public accessible Bandwidth test server. It is available for temporary testing through the Internet.

To use this server to test your Mikrotik devices through the Internet you agree not to abuse it.

Here are the details for my server:
- x86 ROS hosted on VMware ESXi server (with 10-gig connection to the Internet)
- Burstable to 250 Meg up/down
- Sustained traffic is limited to 100 Meg up/down (after about 30 to 60 seconds)
- Your maximum connection time for testing is not to exceed 10 minutes.
- IP Address: 207.32.195.2
- btest user authentication needed: User: btest Password: btest
- You may NOT winbox to this machine - you may bandwidth test to it.

Please post your positive and/or negative results or thoughts.

If this server is abused, I will discontinue it.
I hope this helps Mikrotik network admins everywhere.

Here's a suggestion on how you can keep your server not being (too) abused:

Require that routers make a "/tool fetch" request to a web server, and have the server return temporary bandwidth test username and password (ideally username on first line, and password on second line; for easy parsing). The username/password would only be valid for 10 minutes or so, after which, it would refuse to generate credentials for that IP for another... let's say hour or so.

To actually add the user automatically, you can use the API.
PEAR2_Net_RouterOS(1.0.0b6) - My API client in PHP

I considered doing just that - however I took the quick-easy-simple way to build it. If it creates any problems, then I will do just what you said.

FYI - (With bandwidth limits turned off) - I have tested to the internal loopback IP address of 127.0.0.1 and hit 17 gig. And external to the live IP address at up to 8 gig.

Also - if this is not abused, then I will consider increasing the temporary burstable peak testing speed to a full gig up/down.

Great idea if You have a good infrastructure and inet line! Thank You!
I was always wondering why MikroTik didn't do that with few bunch of load balanced servers.
I will test it in the evening CET.

Thank you - you are welcome to bang away test at it.

If anybody wants to perform any very-high bandwidth testing to it, you are welcome to drop me a private message and we can set up a time where it can be increased up to 10 gig if necessary.

I would guess that the lost-packets are due to my simple queue
Max limit: 100 M
Burst limit: 250 M
Burst threshold: 100 M
Burst time: 120

when the test exceeds the burst limit it will start dropping packets for a max of 250 meg
when the test exceeds the burst time it will start dropping packets for a max of 100 meg

I just tried your server...

on upload, I get my full upload limit of my isp, on either tcp, or udp.
on receive, I only get around 50 mbit down on TCP, my connection is 100 Mbit, but that could be due to location, but on UDP download, it bursts up to about 7 mbit for about 1 seconf, then to nothing, I cant actually see any traffic passing, if it is, its very few kbits, but still shows 0bps on the graph. the actual interface traffic is a few, less then 100 kbits/sec. Not sure what happened to the UDP......

this happens every time I have tried the test.

Testing from Canada

hmm oddly enough, I do a send and receive I get my 7 mbit upload and 130 down. I should only have 110 down, but hey, that's better. So seems to be only on Receive only test. and doesn't affect the Both, or upload....odd..

If you have more upload speed during testing than download speed during testing, I would guess this would be created by your ISP being over-subscribed. Where there is much more ISP download traffic to customers than upload traffic. Thus the possible reason why you upload speed may be faster.

Or the problem could also be where your ISP gets their Internet feed from - they could also be over subscribed.


You may want to try bandwidth speed tests at busy times and at least busy times and see if there is a difference in test results. A difference in test results may point to somebody being oversubscribed.

This is one of the reasons I put my Mikrotik bandwidth tester on-line - so that Mikrotik network admins can test and determine such issues.

umm, yes, I understand, but when I do the test as " receive only" as UDP it jumps to about 4 - 7 mbit down, then to pretty much 0, ie NO traffic.

If I run the receive only test as TCP I get about 50-60 mbit, tcp data, which is expected for my 100 mbit connection.

if I run the UDP "both" send receive I get the full amounts of my connection, about 7 up, and 110 down.

so, ONLY the UDP receive only test gets no download speed. I don't mean, 1 mbit, or 2, I mean Zero. well, a short burst to 4-7 mbit when it first starts for 1 second.

ahh never mind. I have my last rule as a drop all others rule on my firewall, when I disable that, the download test with UDP works normally. as to why, im to lazy to figure out. everything else works, except this bandwidth test. odd.

Another possible reason the test results may be off is the clock-speed of the remote Mikrotik device performing the test.
This is why I am running my server on a 3+ GHz Intel CPU. When I run the test from an old RB 500, I get much much slower results. Those old RB jump up to 100 percent load quickly.

On my server, testing to itself (IP Address 127.0.0.1) it will jump up to 18 gig throughput testing and almost hit 45 percent CPU load. (and this is a virtual x86 ROS running under VMware ESXi with many many other active servers doing other things also).

With 100 tcp conn. count up to 140/87 mbps, with default 20 Conn 60/60 on 200/100 line.
But beware there is a Atlantic (Croatia) and 5km wireless link inbetween line and test equipment. Very good!!!

TCP is often much more difficult to hit full speed because of the protocol which requires return ACK packets. This is where distance between the test devices has a major effect - due to the speed of light (round-trip propagation time through the network).

UDP is fire and forget. Thus there is no ACK return packet required when sending UDP fire-and-forget packets.

So on long distance - I would expect UDP to almost always show faster results. And with the way the TCP protocol works, I would expect it to be slower as you increase layer 2 and layer 3 hops on TCP traffic..

Anybody up for a greater than 1-gig btest through the Internet ?

Sat Jan 30, 2016 3:16 am

Anybody up for a greater than 1-gig btest through the Internet ?

I've got a 10-gig physical network. I would like to test with somebody else who has 10-gig physical connection to the Internet using the Mikrotik bandwidth test program. Something like an O-dark-30 after-hours test limited to 2 gig only for a minute or so.

On my side, I want to verify my 10 gig connection is actually running faster than 1 gig.

Somebody up for some testing ?

This is perfect! Thanks so much for providing this. I was just looking into how I could accomplish some of these tests and I couldn't be happier to find it. Definitely enough to saturate the Comcast links I'm testing in Atlanta :).


Thanks again!

You are welcome

I can see from my logs that it gets some use.

It looks like there has not been any abuse. So, soon in the near future (when I have the time to test & verify), I may increase it to 1.2 gig. I have the spare bandwidth here to work with.

My informal results so far have been the following:

Comcast Business class in Atlanta's West Side, probably lowest speed tier: 30Mbps down and 7Mbps up.
My Comcast residential in Marietta, GA: 29Mbps and 6Mbps up.
Charter residential in Roswell, GA: 65Mbps down and 4.2Mbps up.

Thanks again!

Very cool. Testing Seattle(?) to Virginia:
[me@myrouter] > tool bandwidth-test 207.32.195.2 ... direction=receive remote-tx-speed=200M duration=30 
                status: done testing
              duration: 31s
            rx-current: 199.9Mbps
  rx-10-second-average: 199.9Mbps
      rx-total-average: 199.9Mbps
          lost-packets: 0
           random-data: no
             direction: receive
               rx-size: 1500
I've often thought about setting this up as well, though we only have a 1Gbe connection and abuse is a concern, though I'd imagine that most people who could abuse it have better things to do.

If you don't mind a suggestion, you may want to add a couple filter rules to track addresses running tests so you can limit them to a finite number of sessions per period of time.

I thought about adding IP tracking. One reason I have not is that I am not that good on the Mikrotik when it comes to firewall rules needed to track and log IPs during a bandwidth test.

However, I do know how to use Cisco access-lists with permits that can log IPs through my core 10-gig Cisco router to get from the Internet to/from my Mikrotik Bandwidth tester.

Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server (now test up to 1.2 gig throughput)

Thu Feb 11, 2016 7:28 pm

Some good news. I kicked up the peak throughput testing to now support up to 1.2 GIG bandwidth testing.

With the original system, I did not see any abusers. Everybody was good.

Please wait at least 1 minute between tests. My simple queue needs this time for the average traffic to drop so that it can again peak back up to 1.2 gig for another test.

Below is a CLI method to perform the test (if you are a command prompt type of person):
bandwidth-test 207.32.195.2 user=btest password=btest protocol=udp duration=30 direction=receive
bandwidth-test 207.32.195.2 user=btest password=btest protocol=udp duration=30 direction=transmit
If you use the CLI method shown above; then look at your tx-or-rx "10-second-average:" when the test is completed.

FYI information:
- At this time, my Internet connection should have the ability to support this load at all times
- My Internet connection comes out at Seattle Washington U.S.A. although I am actually located in North Idaho U.S.A.
- If you do not get the speeds you think you should be getting, then wait about 5 minutes. Somebody else could be testing which could effect your testing.
- I am not sure how well bandwidth tests will perform near or above 1-gig (due to the nature of the Internet connected routers and switches and physical transports)
- Please post your positive or negative results or thoughts about this tester.
- Please no abusers. The function of this tester is only intended to good and proper use
- And I wish to say "Thank You" for feedback.

Tom,

This couldn't come at a better time. We're getting ready to turn up a new 1Gbe connection, and it will be very nice to actually be able to test it.

For the firewall, here are 2 simple rules that will limit the number of tests that can be performed
/ip firewall filter
add action=reject chain=input connection-state=new dst-port=2000 protocol=tcp reject-with=tcp-reset \
    src-address-list=btest
add action=add-src-to-address-list address-list=btest address-list-timeout=1d chain=input connection-state=new \
    dst-port=2000 protocol=tcp
First rule will reject any new connection from any address in the "btest" address list. The second rule will generate that list as connections come in. I used 1 day in the example.

Again, as long as folks aren't abusing it, great... but this may help if things become a problem.

Another way to do authentication, would be radius, which could use an SQL back-end, easily managed by a web front end where users could register, be verified, then granted access. I won't pretend to have the patience for building something like this, but I'm sure if you were to ask the community, someone would be more than happy to step up and help you out.

Re: Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server

Thu Feb 18, 2016 6:45 pm

I would like others to consider configuring their own public Mikrotik Bandwidth Tester systems also and placing them on-line for other Mikrotik network admins to be able to btest to/from with.

I have had mine on-line for almost two months now and the last week has been opened up to be able to btest up to 1.2 gig (note a continuous btest will drop down to 100 meg). So far, I have not seen any effects on my business ISP network.

If you have the bandwidth to spare, I would like to suggest you consider also making a btest server. From my point of view, I have the bandwidth and I have only heard positive comments and so-far I have not seen any abuse - thank you.

Also - If anybody has a desire to perform any really high-throughput bandwidth testing, you are welcome to drop me a message and we can set up a time where I can crank up my btest server to be able to sustain up to 3-gig (Yes I have that kind of spare bandwidth).

Hi Tom,

Thank you very much for providing this! My results are below.
Are you planning to keep this server running permanently (for the foreseeable future, or until you run out of spare bandwidth)? Or is this a temporary project only?

It would be awesome if it's long-term, but either way, thank you!

novical - are you measuring what you are supposed to be getting ?



If there are no abusers, I plan on keeping it on-line and available (aka long-term).

I plan on keeping it available as long as I have the extra un-used bandwidth to support btest connections.
At this time, do not see having to reduce the speed to less than 1 gig.

Yes, getting very close to what I'm supposed to. 25 up / 25 down, but there is lots of other stuff running so I estimated it would be closer to 15-20Mbps.

That would be great. I would like to set up a test server too at some point, but it may be a while before I can do that so in the meantime it's really nice having this. Are you aware of any other servers or yours is the only one as far as you know?

Thank you

Great - I must admit that I did now know how well 1.2 gig would traverse through the Internet.

I am thinking about kicking it up to 2.4 gig then later 3.6 gig - might do the first later this week.

It would be nice if the btest server had a setting for how long a test can run to/from a client. If I had this kind of control of the server, then I would remove all limits and let it run up to 10-gig for 10 seconds or longer.

FASTER Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server

Thu Feb 25, 2016 3:00 am

Now you may test your Internet download speeds up to 3.5 Gig !!!
btest-squeue.jpg
Good news for you

I opened up my best server to be much faster !!!
It now supports 3.5 Gig bandwidth tests to you (your download speed)
It now supports 2.2 Gig bandwidth tests from you (your upload speed)

Hi Tom

Just tried it !

2G down and 1.3G up :)

Not bad since there is the Atlantic ocean between us :)

And for the 1.3G up...I'm testing from a CCR 1036-8G-2S+, and at that speed one core hits 100% and that's it :)

LOL - that actually made a needle like spike in my Cacti bandwidth graphs

If you don't mind, I have some questions for you:

- What do you get when you btest to your local loopback IP address of 127.0.0.1 ?
On my ESXi VMware hosted 32-bit x86 ROS, I get around 17 gig.

- What do you get when you btest to the IP address of your WAN on your Mikrotik?
I get 9 gig.

I have never played with a CCR device, so I really have no idea just how well they perform under heavy load and testing. I sure would like to replace my 32-bit x86 ROS btest server with a 64-bit ROS btest server. Anybody willing to donate one (or a physical miktorik that can handle a public btest server up to 10-gig ???

In both cases I get around 850Mb/s...and a sigle cpu core at 100%.
And Bandwidth Test uses only a single CPU core...so the tilera cpu isn't the best option on which to run the btest server...

FYI - Although I am running my ROS in a VMware ESXi environment, I am running two Intel Xeon 10-core E5-2690 3-GHz CPUs (20-meg CPU cache) (Hyper-Threading disabled), of which I have allocated 2 CPUs to the virtual ROS.

I was not aware that btest only used a single core. I might drop it down to a single CPU and see if it makes any difference.

Yeah...me neither, because frankly i don't use it at all, but since I saw your post I thought maybe i should try it :)

But then I read http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:To ... width_Test and there it was :

Warning: Bandwidth Test uses only single CPU core and will reach its limits when core will be 100% loaded.

Very nice.

From New Zealand through 19 hops I can get 1Gbit Full Duplex.

FYI - the Mikrotik x86 ROS must of crashed a couple of days ago - I just noticed it was not talking so I re-started it.
207.32.195.2
btest user: btest
btest password: btest

This time I put a network monitor on it to alert me if it happens to go down.

I suspect I may of crashed it when I was performing some bandwidths from a 64-bit ROS and had all rate-limiting disabled.

LOL - well somebody had a 6 hour long btest running.

After a few minutes, my simple queue drops from Gigs down to 250 meg, which then continued running for 6 hours.

For an hours long sustained btest, it looks pretty good with no drop-outs from what I can see.

Good thing that I have several gigs of extra un-used available bandwidth :)

Re: 3.5 GIG - Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server

Hi, great work done.
We used to use a Mikrotik router from a friend's network to do 'real' internet traffic test from our network towards his server. But his business is sold....

Anyway, I can use your's now to test again.

We have a 300/300Mb simmetric line delivered to us over a dual hop microwave link from our provider. (24Ghz) After some ill experiances with previous provider we need to test that capacity once a month at least to see we really get what we pay for.... so here your service comes in place.

We can use www.speedtest.net but results are all over the place and therefore very unreliable in my opinion. Either these servers at times, or part of my providers network or part of the rest of the (inter)network is saturated at times since sometime I can push my link to indeed 300 up and almost 300 down, but at time same PC connect to my CCR (=gateway) only gets 20Mb down......

Anyway I found your test server, very helpfull!

BUT;
I also have a multi session download bandwidth test program from Peplink (manufacturer for multy WAN load balancers) that works very nice (download only!) in downloading some standard files (MS-Windows upgrade for instance).
With this little program on my PC I can open several downloads (4 program sessions) for several files and it will fill the 300Mb pipe up to 285-290Mbps considered we already have some 90-140Mb client traffic running.
Done this many times and almost always can 'fil' by download pipe.

But just now did the MT-bandwidth test from same PC and can only 'fill' the same pipe to just over 200Mbps.
Actually, I could even run the bandwidth test from my CCR1016-12G and still can not fill the pipe. Max I'll get is 210-220Mbps max.
Starting Peplink in parrallel and it puts another 60Mbps on top of it to fill the pipe to 260-270 this time....


We are now developing the 'feeling' something is wrong with our CCR settings.
We also never can get the clients assigned (simple queues by PPPoE-server) internet speeds as we sell. But internal MT bandwidth test always completely fill the client's assigned queues.

Anybody has any advice where to look for?
Show your appreciation of this post by giving me Karma! Thanks.
